Right! Its a Merkur air condition mount. Go to my tech tip thread about it and see a picture of it. Direct bolt on a 2300 engine. Everything lines up 100%. I got mine off the Merkur Club of America site for aprox $20. PICTURE is at http://www.merkurdepot.com  look at the top of the page for the thread for alternator relocation. I used a 3G alternator on mine but the stock one will work too. I did not use a heim joint on mine. I bolted a stock looking bracket to the front of the mount. You must remove an inch or two from the top of the mount. Easy with a hacksaw.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.
